K9 Connection

k9 connection is an experience-based program which educates and inspires at-risk teens through the experience of bonding with and training homeless shelter dogs. Each individual program serves counselor referred teens at participating schools and concludes with a graduation ceremony and the placement of each dog in a permanent home. Work continues with monthly follow-up "check-ins" and student mentoring for all k9 connection graduates.


k9 connection is currently accepting applications for a limited number of Adoption Outreach, General Project Support and Mentoring volunteers. To learn more or download a volunteer application click here
